Question: 

I need to run a batch process out of a script in background mode. How do I do this with CA XCOM for Windows?

Answer: 

If you performing a SENDJOB to XCOM for Windows and do not want the transfer to wait for the script to complete, then you should run the batch process in background mode.  

For example, if you want to kick off an XCOMTCP transfer from a script and have it run in the background:

  1. On Windows, create a file named filename.bat and put the XCOMTCP command in that .bat file.
  2. In the job you are sending to Windows, include in the script the instruction, "START filename.bat".  Be sure to specify the full pathname for filename.bat.

This causes the XCOMTCP based transfer to run in background mode.
